The Hegel V10 MM & MC Phono Amplifier 

Designed to service a wide range of moving-coil and moving-magnet cartridges, aided by its highly flexible gain, loading and subsonic filter settings that are selected via a matrix of DIP switches underneath the black case. Indeed, the elegant but functional Norwegian styling belies the scope of this vinyl-loving preamp. So it’s worth taking the time to dial-up the optimum settings and realise a sound that’s both smooth and gloriously insightful, and clearly ‘voiced’ to partner Hegel’s other electronics.


Hegel V10 Phono Amplifier REVIEW... by Sound Stage Hifi


"What I think we have here is a very, very good phono preamplifier at a price that I believe belies its performance - it betters our, admittedly cheaper, reference by quite a margin - certainly more than the £150 price difference would suggest. It is transparent, detailed, and honest with what it is given by your cartridge, but it doesn't mask any imperfections with a pressing or well-used disc. It has a good range of features including catering for Moving Magnet and Moving Coil cartridges, a subsonic filter that blocks frequencies below 20Hz, gain settings for very low output MC cartridges, and balanced XLR outputs." ... by Hifi Pig (UK)
